I never log out. I'm logged out once I close all my windows anyway, so why bother? Anyway, glad I could help. I'm helpful that way at my job, too, finding new/previously-unknown ways to perform a certain task in our computer system. Now, I'm by no means a computer tech-y, but I'm occasionally able to figure out how to do things (remember, I'm able to "untangle" Hayley's instagram photos for comet (you can only find the jpg of the photo if you went to that person's instagram page first, and nowhere else, and only clicked on that one photo you wanted to share; otherwise, it takes longer to find, and I do know how to do it, but it takes too long too explain).
Sadly, Photobucket is still down for maintenance after well over 6 hours, for the second time within 3 weeks. We'll have to consider hosting the custom menu buttons somewhere else if this continues to happen, this length of downtime twice within a month is really quite unacceptable.
EDIT - I have now replaced the menu buttons by standard menu links until this is fixed.
Meanwhile, here again are some useful menu links in case it happens again in the future:
I managed for years at work without seeing the menu buttons at all, as until recently my company's Websense filters blocked anything from photobucket. I have a link to recent threads in my favourites and just access the forum from there; I stay logged in.
If the standard proboards menu bar works, then I would recommend sticking with it.
Photobucket is back to normal this morning. Click on the link in this tweet for more information about the outage:
On reflection, I'm perfectly happy with the menu buttons as they are now too.
That Photobucket blog post you quoted contains incorrect information because, as you can see from the comments on their Twitter page, it was down for over half a day after that... around 24 hours in all from what I can see. It was definitely still down at 2 am UK time this morning when I checked.
In view of these two sets of problems in the last three weeks and the comments from you, Libby and John, we will have a discussion about what to do so for the moment, I will leave the buttons off.
Yes, if a good many members wish to use the default menu word buttons (as it is now) and after staff discussion, we will do so.
Please chime in...if you would like to see the menu words larger, different colour...do say so. Speaking for myself, I would like to see the words centred on the bar...seeing the HOME way on the left us playing havoc with my OCD!
